For those interested in learning more about this little piece of history....
See "Midnight Ride"
"Revere was captured and questioned by the British soldiers at gunpoint. He told them of the army's movement from Boston, and that British army troops would be in some danger if they approached Lexington, because of the large number of hostile militia gathered there."
(The part in bold is where Revere warned the British)

From what I have read and heard, she showed everyone again that she really doesn't know history.
